Remember the last time I was here?
This is the village next to the one where my grandmother used to live.
Last time I was here I fell into a ditch and ruined my camera.
I have a new camera since then, and I wanted to go back to take the pictures I could not take on the previous occasion. And so I did, last Sunday. It was a beautiful day, and I took loads and loads of pictures. But I stayed well clear of ditches and creeks this time!
This is the picture I wanted to take just before I slipped.
Isn’t that what they say,to always go back and face your demons? Well, I did.
This fellow was not too pleased with my presence. He felt like he needed to defend his cows, but the ladies did not care much.
Oh and I marked the spot too. Just behind that electricity pole is where I fell into the reed and the water…
No accidents happened this time, and we continued our journey from there.
Butterflies, Corn Flowers …
The same as it always was …
Even the sky … The same fluffy clouds I used to see when I was a kid reflect in the water, and the red poppies add the finishing touch to this beautiful painting.
This is the road leading to my grandparents house.
Between the first two trees is where their little house used to be. It’s sad I can no longer go there. I have so many memories from this place. Do you see the trees between the second and the third tree? I used to lay on my back there as a kid, looking at the white clouds, trying to figure out what shape they were. My father made me drive the car there once, and I almost hit a cow. So many memories …
I used to look over the fields into the direction of the church to look out for my first boyfriend.
Don’t touch, they said. But I had to try it anyway…
I can still feel it.
The chapel at the other end of the village. My grandmother had to stop there too and let me have a little peek inside.
I have so much more, and this is already getting very very long. I’ll tell you what, I’m going to share some more during the next week. Stay tuned, okay?
